Schnapps Out of It

Name: Schnapps Out of It

Collection: Germany 2012

Colour: Gingery Salmon with very fine silver microshimmer ribbons

Coats: 1 coat at first but so many touch-ups!

Pros: I don’t really have anything nice to say other than I love the name and it photographed well but that was because I had to paint my nails a few seconds before taking the picture so that there were no chips. This colour had so much promise with its creamy mauve and hint of silver microshimmer but the silver was not actually visible on the nail!

Cons: Honestly, this polish had a thick, gummy consistency that peeled off after a few hours! I was so disappointed because this colour looked so nice in the press release but unfortunately ended up being unoriginal and impossible to wear. I would give this polish a pass.  

Similar Shades: As I said above this colour is unoriginal as it is almost identical to two great OPI polishes: “Java Mauve-a” and the new “Gouda, Gouda Two Shoes” from the Holland Collection. I would just stick with these two and not waste your money on this disappointing newcomer.
This product was provided by OPI


  1. It is a pity about the staying power of this polish as it is a pretty colour!

  2. such a pretty color but too bad it chips easily. I'm trying to get more darker, bolder colors for the fall and I thought this color would be great. Maybe will take your suggestion and try the other 2 OPI shades.

    Thanks for visiting my blog, following you :)

    1. Thank you for visiting my blog, I loved your post on Revlon! I agree this shade is a great option for fall :)

  3. The colour is perfect. Have you found any other similar shades in a better formulated nail varnish? This is a colour I think most people could pull off, especially for autumn s you've already said.
